Windows Home Server as a Porn Blocker



As more and more kids take to the internet it is a challenge for parents to keep them off sites not age appropriate.  Joe DiFiglia of Computing on Demand has a nice tutorial on setting up your Windows Home Server as a free proxy.  With your Windows Home Server acting as a proxy you can add sites or keywords that you want blocked.  Sometimes it’s easier for younger kids to just add sites you want them to see.  Using a setup like this will allow you to configure the proxy on each kids computer but manage sites from just the Windows Home Server.  You can also keep logs of errors and attempts to access restricted sites.

I should note that this setup can also be used to browse sites that might be blocked by your school or work.  This way you are in full control instead of using a online proxy.

I don’t personally have kids but I think it’s a nice alternative to manage multiple kids computers.
